Murnau: The Blue Rider

"Blue Land" is what Franz Marc called the region around Murnau, marked by lakes and mountain peaks. Thus the name for the second important school
of expressionism was coined. Besides Marc there were Wassily Kandinsky, Gabriele Münter, Alexej Jawlensky and Otto Müller who created their famous contrast paintings since 1908 under the influence of the folk culture and landscape of that region. The Schlossmuseum houses the most important permanent exhibition of Münter paintings worldwide. The Münterhaus shows amongst other exhibits, furniture and walls painted on by Kandinsky and Münter.
